So much for that idea

I had some pretty good video already, even though we just arrived in Turkey. The wireless here though is limited to the hotel lobby, and everyone seems to want to use it at the same time - so video uploading is pretty much out of the question. Instead, I guess I will have to rely on my puny words to describe what is happening. I have a few good photos, and should be able to upload one or two of those as time goes by.

Today is mostly orientation and meeting up with old friends as well as making some new ones. I'm just relaxing for most of the day. There is a mandatory briefing this afternoon.

The highlight of the trip so far was our flight from JFK to Instanbul, which three hours into it had to return to JFK to repair the lavatories. I guess flying for 8 hours without a functioning bathroom is beyond acceptablity. Anyway, we left at 5pm, returned at 8:30 and then were off into the air again at midnight. 25 hours later here I am in Antalya, Turkey!
